I would not be exaggerating when I say that Rocket Bean Roastery came as bliss for every quality espresso lover in Riga. And not only that. Besides roasting beans at one end of the place, it is also liable for awesome drinks and top-notch cuisine by Arturs Taskans all under one roof.
The feeling I got when first walking into Rocket Bean Roastery was something different from any other spot I happened to had visited previously. For me and most likely many other ‘all-tasty-things’ lovers in Riga, this place came with an awareness of “this is it” – a coffee place for Chemex freaks, a lunch spot for fine food connoisseurs and eventually a meeting point for all the think-alike locals.
Despite the “word of mouth” fame of the menu, food is not what attracts me the most to the Rocket Bean Roastery. Being something close to a coffee snob, it is rather the freshly roasted beans and the ambiance of the place that makes me return and never regret my decision. In Rocket Bean Roastery everything is made clear and easy. Here is the kitchen, here we roast, here we pour, there is our superb chef, the cakes are on the counter – sit down and relish. So we do.
